Ups and Downs and All Around

Saturday, April 15, 2017

I've been in a crazy circle of life. Work has been busy with meetings and the gym gets skipped. It's like a horrible cycle that always seems to get me when I'm in full swing. Then I get pissed for not working out, and of course turn to food...because after all that should just cure it all! I know that's not the case, but that is the merry go round I am on. A month ago I was able to finally spend time with my Sister/BFF. We spent a day in Seattle and it was SO much fun. I got to see her little house on her island, but just being with her is what brought me joy! (We have cute pictures but it's not letting me attach them from my phone. UGH!!) So now I'm home and I still haven't gotten a full week of workouts in. Not only is work crazy, but we are also getting the house ready to sell. So now it's like "let's do everything we should have done to the house in the last ten years into two weekends"....I'm tired, I'm sore and I'm eating like poo every weekend. I sit here and wonder, when do I come first? Why does everything seem to come before what I need done? The only answer I know is because I'm a mom and a wife, and I always have to do for others before myself. I really need to learn how to be more selfish! My goal was to be around 160 by my bday....while I would love to be at goal weight at this point unless I starve myself (can't do because I LOVE food too much) dropping almost 100 pounds in like 7 months just doesn't seem healthy. Oh and I'm. It about the unhealthy side of doing things. At least during the week my meals are like 95% on point. I just have to get my workouts in! Going to try and get up in the mornings and get my workout in at that point. Going to bed earlier has been helping me, nothing like a 9pm bedtime! So Monday, yet again brings a fresh start!

    Count some of you packing and cleaning as your workout. Go to your SparkPeople fitness tracker and look up housecleaning, vacuuming, etc. you might be surprised at how many calories housecleaning burns.
